Suicide Squad

Family outing today with Toni, Sam, Aaron, Zoe and I making a trip to the Cineworld in Bexleyheath to go and see Suicide Squad.

Critics and reviewers hadn't been particularly kind about Suicide Squad but lots of friends enjoyed so we went in with balanced expectations. Sometimes I wonder what film critics have actually been to see as I thought Suicide Squad was pretty good.

Will Smith made an excellent Deadshot and Margot Robbie was superb as Harley Quinn. Anyone worried about Jared Lato's portrayal of Joker need not worry either as he rose to the task well (and let's face it topping Heath Ledger's version would always take some doing). As usual I won't get into spoilers in this post so here's a quick synopsis of the plot:  Figuring they're all expendable, a U.S. intelligence officer decides to assemble a team of dangerous, incarcerated supervillains for a top-secret mission. Now armed with government weapons, Deadshot , Harley Quinn , Captain Boomerang, Killer Croc and other despicable inmates must learn to work together. Dubbed Task Force X, the criminals unite to battle a mysterious and powerful entity, while the diabolical Joker launches an evil agenda of his own.

Suicide Squad is well worth a watch if you like the DC Universe or have a passing interest in comic book/superhero movies. This is one where the critics have definitely got it wrong.
